Out Junkin…

I realize that antique shopping … picking … hunting … however you want to refer to it is not a new hobby or concept.  However, I realize it is new to me! 🙂  I am a “less is more” kind of person when it comes to stuff in my house and life, but I am starting to appreciate items with history (like antiques).

Another trend I am noticing … clients are asking for organizing pieces with character and design aspects.  That $15 corkboard from Target doesn’t cut it anymore.  Something pretty and functional is what people are asking demanding for!

I started my antique hunting a few weeks back.  I have some items I’m selling for a client and I needed to figure out what they were.  Sleepy Poet Antique Mall I went.  The rest is history — I’m hooked!

If you want to go antique shopping with me sometime, then drop a line in the comments or by email! 🙂

SLEEPY POET

Located at 4450 South Blvd.  (near Woodlawn)

Hours:

  • Monday – Thursday:  10am-6pm
  • Friday – Saturday:  10am-8pm
  • Sunday:  12pm-6pm

The place is pretty large with tons of dealers.  Think of it as a Black Lion for antiques … and a lot more stuff.  I have not had a chance to go and quietly stroll.  Must.Go.Back.

Here are a few pictures from items I found:

Dress Forms are everywhere!
I would organize and display jewelry, scarves, & hats!

Old tool bins/tins. Great for a garage!

Drawers .. Card files.
These were chest height. LOVE the character.

THE DEPOT AT GIBSON MILL

Located at 325 McGill Ave, Suite 250.  Concord, NC.

Hours:

  • Monday – Saturday:  10am-7pm
  • Sunday:  1pm-6pm

This place rocks my world.  It is an old mill turned antique mall.  Same concept as Sleepy Poet except is more spread out (aka more room to gently stroll).  I’m so glad I had my camera.  The inspirational ideas were endless!

Chalkboard is everywhere!
This was on a door.

For your keys.

Love these hooks and the style.

There are more pictures on our Facebook page. 🙂

Until next time…
